And your's is not 3 MBps, its 3 Mbps. That much I can guarentee. Big difference between bits and bytes.
And as for aDSL in most area's of the country it's not quite that fast. In Denver its 1.5 Mbps. You live in Hong Kong. I am talking about the US, which unless you live in some area's of Texas, California, and spots on the East Coast. Cable Modem is faster DL speed.
I know what you mean about Megabytes per second and Megabits per second, but there was one time were i WAS downloading at 3 megabytes per second. I wasnt quoting the cable operator's claims. I have the screenshot if you want me to prove it.
Also, i hear cable is alot more expensive than DSL, but i could be wrong cuz i dont think we got Cable here in HK, just alot of DSL.
